This is a space for groups that coalesce around particular areas of interest within culture, health and wellbeing. This is a new area for us and this part of the site will take time to develop as people consider themes they feel need support.
A new national network has been set up for anyone who takes responsibility for arts, heritage and design in hospitals. The group is being hosted by the NHS national performance advisory group and letters will be sent to all hospital arts managers in the UK and all NHS trusts for people to sign up.
The first meeting of the group was in London on 12 June to coincide with Creativity & Wellbeing Week and there will be three meetings per year around the country. The purpose of the group is to share best practice, create a national profile for arts in hospitals and provide support and advice.
